On August 1st, the Michigan football team will report for fall camp, which will officially begin on August 2nd. For Blake Corum and his Wolverines, this will be the final step of preparation before the fall season kicks off against ECU on September 2nd. After coming close to the national title twice in a row, the time for talking is over — no more dreaming for the Wolverines, who are looking to finally get over the hump and win it all in 2023-24.

“I hold my teammates, myself and the coaches hold us to a high standard right,” Blake Corum said yesterday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium. “And part of me coming back was, I said unfinished business. You know that was my thing, unfinished business on the field, off the field, you know, in general. But we have a team that is very special right now. A lot of guys came back. You know, JJ has another year under his belt … Team wise, we’re great.

“We’ve been working our butts off this year. I mean, this summer, and I believe the camaraderie and the growth, brotherly love that we have within each other right now is crazy. “And you know, what I’m telling the guys now and what the coaches are telling us, you know, this is day to day now.

“We’ve had enough dreaming,” Blake Corum continued. “We’ve had enough talk about the national championship, and now it’s day to day. We got to beat ECU first. I’m saying we can’t think too far ahead … we have to take care of the regular schedule and beat our rivals. And then, you know, we get there.

“We just gotta get over the hump,” Corum said. “But, I have high standards. So yeah, it’s win or bust. And I think the guys know that but we don’t have to say anything. We know what it is. Talk is cheap. And right now we’re just focused on camp and then we’re gonna go from there. We will attack each and every day and try to get better. And that’s what we’re doing.”
